New Star Wars Cartoon Series Announced

The next cartoon series of the Star Wars saga has been revealed today by Disney. It is called "Star Wars Resistance" and looks like it will take place before Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The animated series will focus on "Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance whose mission is to spy on the growing threat of the First Order" with Oscar Issac (Poe Dameron) and Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma) voicing their characters. BB-8 and other new character will be part of the series.

"The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots," [Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave] Filoni said. "My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that's been a big influence on me. There's a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we've captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time."

The voice cast features Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives), Suzie McGrath (East Enders), Scott Lawrence (Legion), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales), Jim Rash (Community) and Rachel Butera (Tammy's Tiny Tea Time).

No premiere date has been set except that it will be sometime in the Fall 2018 on Disney XD.
